    Jerry Nelson, I know you have to do what you have to do, but I have to say that while I'll enjoy the newer Muppet talent out that is out there dinng their thing, I'm gonna miss you. Peace be with you and your loved ones, Ilikemuppets.

    Lets remember that Nelson has not completely detatched himself from all Muppet work. He is still doing his stuff on Sesame Street and he will be involved in the new Dark Crystal movie. I am sure he will also be on board for the Fraggle Rock project. He hasn't left us yet.:crazy:

    No, but hes not doing much. I wonder how they'll cast someone as Robin. He has such a unique voice. The guy that voiced Floyd Pepper in MWoO didn't do a very good Floyd. It sounded nothing like him.

    I ment I'll miss him on the other Muppet Productions.

    I have said it a thousand times, but I sure wish I could go hang out with Jerry for a day and go partying or something, man. I bet he's awesome to hang out with.

    Jerry performs the Count once in a while on Sesame Street, and he will be making a comeback as the Amazing Mumford in just a few more weeks for the 2-parter Season finale. It's really gonna be sad when Jerry leaves Sesame Street. I can't imagine his charachters being played by anyone else. :smirk: :sing: :crazy:

    i made a possible list of recent performers, i put most of jerry's deeper voice characters with John Kennedy since he did Floyd in MWoO and most of the higher voice character's with Rickey Boyd since he did Crazy Harry, I also put ideas for some of Richard Hunt's still silent characters, but this is just my ideas

    As I understand it Ricky Boyd WILL be the new voice of Robin. I have heard through the grapevine that his Robin is amazing and you really can't tell the diference. I have also heard he does a really good Gobo Fraggle too.

    That's great!! I must hear this for myself though! Maybe this means we'll see Robin coming back into the lime light soon!:excited: I hope so!!

    Ricky Boyd did Scooter in MWoO, and I REALLY hope to see him on board to perform Scooter and Janice in the future!!

    Didn't John Kennedy play Dr. Teeth at one point in time? I wanna say it was in MFS, it was one word, "Shalom", when the EM was playing a bar mitzvah, I believe.

    If Kennedy is getting Floyd, who's getting Dr. Teeth?

    I didn't see WoO- which previously silent Muppets were in that and who performed them?

    Bill Barretta has been playing Dr. Teeth (as well as Rowlf) recently.
  17. Daffyfan2003 Active Member

    Well, that makes sense, since Rowlf and Dr. Teeth have always sounded similar.

    By the way, has Robin been seen in anything since Jerry's retirement? I think I read on Toughpigs that he appeared on "Good Morning America," but I'm not sure.

    By the way, I don't think Rickey Boyd ever performed Janice. Tyler Bunch performed her is MWOO. Rickey's Scooter is really good though. It's a big improvement over Brian Henson's Scooter.

    Then, in that case: Give Scooter to Rickey and Janice to Tyler. They are awesome!!

    All of them are rockin' awesome!!

    I'm probably not the first to mention this, but I think Eric's Fozzie has improved a lot between Its, a Very Merry Muppet Christmas Movie and Muppets Wizard Oz

    I agree with you.
